Inspection Line 

Advantage Powder Coating Inc. is a state of the art facility which utilizes the field of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) for the process of Inspection.


We currently specialize in Penetrant Testing (PT), Magnetic Particle Testing (MT), and Visual Testing (VT).


Penetrant Testing is probably the most widely used NDT method. The test object or material is coated with a visible or fluorescent dye solution, removed and then a developer is applied. The developer acts like a blotter and draws penetrant out of imperfections which open to the surface.


Magnetic Particle Testing or Magnaflux as it is sometimes called is done by inducing a magnetic field in a ferromagnetic material and dusting the surface with iron particles (either dry or suspended in a liquid). Surface imperfections will distort the magnetic field and concentrate the iron particles near imperfections, thus indicating their presence.


Visual Examination has numerous industrial and commercial applications. Examiners follow procedures ranging from simple to very complex, some of which involve comparison of workmanship samples with production parts. Visual techniques are used with all other NDT methods.


APC is interested in showing you how our company can provide you with an  ADVANTAGE in your market.
